Leaving behind their experience against the dark specters, our heroes continue to battle their way through the sewers.

After managing to defeat the kaken hatchling, the heroes return to the boglig village, tell their story, and speak to the chief. Spending the night in the village, Olgrim and Puck are presented with an interesting dilemma with very different results. The heroes finally meet the man the bogligs have been healing.
